egypt is growing organic potatoes in the desert. delegates meeting in doha face many major issues: first of all they have to make sure that the kyoto treaty isn't simply lost when it runs out in december. while working against the clock they are also painfully aware that the world's largest emitters, the united states and china are still not bound to any agreement at all. in turn japan, russia and canada warn that they will not sign any further treaty unless all major polluters come onboard. a tall order for some 20,000 delegates who have travelled to doha, each with their own agenda and issues they want discussed. and while they are meeting right in the middle of the desert, they are doing exactly what they are trying to prevent: producing co2. we explore the environmental cost of an environmental summit: >> politicians and climate experts are meeting in qatar for the 2012 un climate change conference. but the conference itself will also produce tons of co2. so how climate-damaging is a climate summit? some 25,000 people are expected to attend the conference in qatar. most of the

dictator that spread to egypt and the egyptian revolution was concern to the united states. egypt has long held incredible importance to u.s. policy in the middle east. the u.s. reaction to that revolution was unclear. there were some that said this was a good thing that this would only lead to democracy. there were others who insisted that mubarak was not a dictator, which might be an insult to dictators if he spent 30 years securing that grip on power. the revolution in egypt has taken many turns. the muslim brotherhood has come to power through the ballot box but has been marred thanks to edicts by morsi. earning him the title of morsilini. or mubarak with a beard. revolution is going. syria is teetering, jordan is burning and the future is yet to be written. the question, will there be elections, will islamists win, will it be one man one vote or one man, one vote, one time. with that, we are going to debate the motion, if democracy is going to triumph are victories at the ballot box unavoidable. we will have opening remarks from our panelists. from there, we will have some questi
